Surrounded with a border promoting the extent of London’s diverse industry, culture, heritage and commerce, this pictorial map brims with civic pride. Historic institutions such as Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese (one of London’s most famous pubs) share space with Underground stations, borough crests, and the many other aspects that make the city an incredible place to live and visit. Areas such as Southwark may lack density of notable locations, but empty spaces are filled with workers and factories, obfuscating the working-class nature of the neighborhood.
One of a number of editions that was first issued in the mid-1950s, this particular example was designed by Simon Stern and published in London by Geographia Ltd. around 1970. A fun and vivacious representation of ‘The Big Smoke.’
